Francesca pretty much enjoys anything outside including hiking, family outings, Disneyland, riding my Peloton bike, running, and mystery books. She is proud to be a volunteer for CDH families, for this has been one of her goals since she had her daughter. Francesca shared with us, “I remember when we found out about CDH we knew nothing about it. Now it is my turn to give back and support others who might need someone. Even if it is just listening or letting them know they are not alone. CHERUBS was a big help for us when we were going through the unknown of CDH.”
